BBC Math Game – Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica

HelpingWithMath.com previously featured a number of short games produced by the BBC. These games have been superseded by the game shown below – Guardians: Defenders of Mathematica. It has several “battles” including ones involving place value, addition & subtraction, multiplication & division, fractions, decimals, algebra, measurement, shapes, and statistics.

Be aware of any differences that may apply to your children. e.g. 120 is spoken as “one hundred and twenty” as opposed to “one hundred twenty”. This said, the large majority of the featured battles have universal application.
